Older business hotels in outlying areas like these need tourism business to help stay afloat. If you don't want to deal with a throng of tourists, foreign or otherwise, staying in the same hotel as you, especially when you are near a city known for tourism, do not stay at a mid-level hotel such as this one. Pony up and go to Ritz-Carlton or at the least Westin.
According to Sheraton, this property was recently renovated; however, you can only do so much with an older property. Still, I think they could have done more. Nevertheless, the room was clean and the beds were comfortable but the bathroom is tiny compared to more modern hotels built to accommodate ADA specs. Outdoor pool is a nice feature lacking in newer business hotels.
Amenities at the business center could have been better. The buffet breakfast was nice but is very pricey if paying separately. Best deal is to get it as a package deal when making reservation. WIFI is not free but as a Sheraton SPG member, I was given free access as a perk. Sheraton/Westin's hotel points are worth more than the Marriott's system, meaning you can get free stays in a comparable hotel for less points.
Outdoor parking was plentiful with easy access. The hotel is in a residential area and has an awkward layout but that's the case with many other business hotels (adjacent Westin Reston, as well as Westin Herndon) in the area straddling residential neighborhoods.
The staff was courteous and professional, especially Teresa at front desk.
I would prefer to stay at other, newer hotels if I'm paying weekday rates, but for the weekend, I had a pleasant stay, getting a good deal w/ breakfast package.
If you have a car, there are plenty of good restaurants nearby to choose from:
Morton's, Mon Ami Gabi, Clyde's, Jackson's, and Uncle Julio's to name a few.
